We recently sent an email to our clients on behalf of ACAS regarding the Coronavirus outbreak.
As a supplement to the information from ACAS, here are some websites we recommend which provide a wealth of useful up to date information on the Coronavirus outbreak:
- From GOV.UK: Information for the public on the outbreak of Coronavirus in China, including the current situation in the UK and information about the virus and its symptoms. This site includes information on travel and updates daily at 2pm.
- From the NHS: Common Coronavirus questions including information on symptoms, prevention measures and management.
- Finally there is some detailed information from the World Health Organisation.
It would be wise to consider having the following readily available; Tissues, Hand washing facilities or Alcohol Gel hand rub, Disposable gloves and Disposable face masks. In particular a place of isolation for any suspected cases identified whilst at work; i.e a well ventilated room.
As this situation is ever changing all employers will be required to remain vigilant.
Also we have provided links to two related NHS public information posters which you can download and print:
We hope this information is helpful.
